    With a great background, warzone in Vietnam, this is a fun game to pick up and fly around, shooting commies. The sound effects of the Air Conflicts are really good, but with walls in the levels it curtails the openness of this game.

    Unless you’re dying for a game set in Vietnam, there’s no great need to play this.

    There are lots of good ideas here, variations in objectives, AI companions, skill building, and numerous aircrafts to fly, but it all feels so bland, mundane even.

My first impressions were bad and some statements still stay: AI does not even exist, for example. All other planes and helos don't even try to do anything. Planes simply circle around a combat zone size of a city block, helicopters hover over the same spot and stay there until the end of the mission unless you take control. Physics is almost non-existent too. I understand that's an arcade game, but at least they could have implemented speed increase when the plane is descending. Some missions are buggy and sometimes you will try to run the same mission again and again until you restart the game and it will get itself together. And these things made me mad. Yet the game succeeded to capture my attention for a whole day. Despite all the bugs fighting was enjoyable and the atmosphere of the Vietnamese War feels quite well in the game, thanks to the choice of music. So, if you are interested in this particular period of history, you can find the game fun even with its poor realization. Full Review »

This game offers some sort of aerial combat with a dumptruck full of bugs that severely hurt this game chances of even being remotely successful. Full Review »
